    Very clever. Does it involve superglue to hold the things up?

    No chocolate I believe... as I will be using chocolate.

    PS they give you a stick to sticky it on!

    I think it looks very effective. It appears to be fashionable among keen bakers. I saw a good one recently with a sweet packet at the top. The sweets flowed down then sat on the top of the cake (enclosed by kit kats) and flowed off one side.
    I have no idea what brands of sweets are vegan.

    I've made one of these. It's not difficult but is basically a chocolate cake with upright decorations. Quite good fun!

    Yes, I think it is art over talent, but effective. I just need to know the consistency of the sticky on the pole thingy to get the truffles to stick. I think I might use Delia's choc fudge icing cooked to an inch of its life.. ie. on the hard side.

    I use melted chocolate.

    The truffles I found were something like Booja which you can get from Ocado. Stem ginger, cherries,champagne, and so on. I imagine even if the cake tastes like a brick we will be OK with the truffles. Got to experiment this weekend with egg substitute, but I doubt it will be as nice as a Devils Food Cake base, so maybe the vegans will have to put up with their truffles...............
